Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Fayette Hospital Presents “Get a Move On”

“Cooking with Herbs” Cooking Demonstration

Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Fayette Hospital (PFH) is promoting health and well-being for breast cancer survivors with a cooking demonstration titled “Cooking with Herbs” on Thursday, March 4, from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. in the Piedmont Fayette Hospital Dining Conference Room. Registration is required by calling 404-425-7944.

Whether you will be planting them or buying them at the store, adding fresh herbs is a quick way to transform ordinary breast cancer fighting foods into extraordinary ones. Chef Hans Rueffert and dietitian Shayna Komar will educate you on simple ways to incorporate herbs into your every day meals.

“Cooking with Herbs” is part of the “Get a Move On” series – a combination of nutrition and exercise programs for breast cancer patients and survivors funded by a grant awarded to Piedmont Fayette Hospital from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Atlanta Affiliate.

Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Fayette Hospital is also offering Cancer WellFitTM, which is a safe, inviting exercise program to improve the physical health and quality of life for people with breast cancer. The program consists of one hour of group exercise two days per week plus one-on-one exercise consultations with a degreed exercise physiologist. The program is offered on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. in the PFH Rehabilitation and Fitness Center in the Fayette Professional Center, directly across from the hospital. To register call 770-719-7290.

Individual nutrition consults are also available for patient’s pre-and post-breast cancer treatment to help them stay motivated, chart their progress and make adjustments to their diet and exercise plans as needed. To schedule an appointment, call 404-425-7944.

In addition, PFH would like to remind residents of the Look Good Feel Better program, a free, non-medical, brand-neutral, national public service program created to help individuals with cancer look good, improve their self-esteem, and manage their treatment and recovery with greater confidence. Classes are available for cancer patients on the first Monday of every month from 10 a.m. to noon in Conference Room A of the 1279 Building of Piedmont Fayette Hospital’s campus. The next class is Monday, March 1.
